I was looking through the Illinois Hunting statutes and came across this one:



(520 ILCS 5/2.33) (from Ch. 61, par. 2.33)
Sec. 2.33. Prohibitions.

...

(h) It is unlawful to hunt adjacent to or near any peat, grass, brush or other inflammable substance when it is burning.


So....

as long as its a flammable substance that is burning - it is OK?

And just how would you get a truly inflammable substance to burn anyway?

It does make you wonder sometimes...

Scott,

It means you can't target any animals fleeing the burning vegetation.
